I need to blog on the Gun Issue and the Anti-Gun Agenda. BUT, I discovered that Abortions kill more women than guns do …
AND having a baby is safer for women than not having a baby. Pregnancy was safer than having an abortion.
WHY isn’t the Progressive Liberal Propaganda machine telling US this?
Below you will find where I got the data, and how I worked through the ‘Math.’ I have not worked word problems in a very long time, so if you do not want a headache, you might just take my word for this.
And leave me with the headache.
BUT, my conclusion was 2 fold.
FIRST, more women die from abortion related causes than from homicide, or from pregnancy.
SECOND, since the leading factor behind homicides is drug gangs, if you factor in for drug related deaths, any woman having an abortion is about 5 times more likely to die from an abortion than she is to die of homicide.
So, when a gun nut says you should fear a gun, what should that same nut say to women about an abortion?
From Wiki [Wiki article]:
3.8 homicides per 100,000 population.
AND less than 1 in 4 homicide victims are women … Therefore less than 1 female homicide per 100,000. [Female Homicide Victims.]
There are about 0.874 women murdered per 100,000 women. I will come back to this number (*).
This next article gave me a headache, but it basically said, “Having children was safer than not having children. And having children was significantly safer than having an abortion. Abortion increased maternal death rate 70% to more than triple, depending on how many abortions. AND abortion was safer than a miscarriage.” = I did not overlook that. So, if you want to argue “Mothers’ health,” there may be an argument there.
17.8 per 100,000 pregnancies end in ‘maternal death.’ Using the increased death rate from abortion, that would give more than 18 additional women die per 100,000 pregnancies terminated by abortions ….
6,250 births per 100,000 women (16*6250=100,000 pregnancies) Therefor 18+/16 = [More than} 1.125 deaths from abortion per 100,000 women.
(*) 1.125 – 0.874 = 0.251 more deaths from abortion per 100,000 women than are murdered.
